Yep the mighty Victa does live on to cut lawns once more.

The CS lister are a great old engine. I hope you find some time I do understand the struggle.

I had it going for a couple of hours in 2011 for it's hundredth birthday, as in your video it tends to start running backwards.
David.
That is great to hear David, nice to have things stay in the family like that and to still have operational. They do seem to start easily backwards if they don't start on the first bump still I find it physically easier to start than any crank handle or rope start engine but you just got to have 10 minutes or more to warm it up and coax it into running in the right direction.

Seeing some notes about Rustons in here. This was my Ruston Mark CR17 running for the first time I've owned it at a local show last month.

Hello Nathan
Without you this thread wouldn't be anything near what it is. After seeing some of the different sorts of stuff you work on, I'm jealous as hell. You are one fortunate person.

I wanted to do a video yesterday as a chance encounter happened that I wasn't expecting quite yet. Guess where the camera was......at home. Barstard

Lawnmower videos.....that's new here and I'm positive there are many mower enthusiasts are among us. I know I like videos of Australian mowers.

That's glorious. Do you see many Ruston's in your part of the world? I would not imagine so.

Hi Scott, I am very lucky to be involved in a great variety things allowing me some great opportunities to play.
I know what it is like to leave the camera at home and now I rarely leave home without it just on the off chance there is something interesting that I bump into.

Hello all
A Marino mower from a few years ago. It has a BSA Power Unit as an engine. I think it was called a Mowall. Not sure off the top of my head.
I should get a belt for it one day but I'm worried the dog will run after it and cut his leg off. Probably better off left as is.

Cheers Scott



PS: It did have a belt. I hope it's still with it.

Couldn't agree more. What a neat looking weapon. I reckon it would do an excellent job.

We have no grass. Any grass we had, the neighbour's cows ate it. Worse drought in a long time.

The history of Mowall was closely related with Victa. The first Mowall had a vertical 5hp marine engine from memory and was simply built to deal with the long weeds around his workshop and built using existing bits n pieces. Merv Richardson asked if he could make these and was given the ok to do so. Before long they could not believe how many per month were being made and sold.

Hello all
My turn again. There's a week or so long festival here in Warwick at the moment called Jumpers and Jazz in July so the museum got a bit of gear out to allow people to pop in, have some smoko and have a look around.
Here is the IHC baler, that has sat for over 60 years, having a bit of a run. First run was last Tuesday and first bale yesterday.
Cheers Scott

Hello
A bit more from Warwick.

Cheers Scott
PS: Those two Ronny's run amasingly smooth. The 2HP in the foreground was used for keeping my cuppa hot. The panikan straight on top of the hopper and job's done.

I like how it the harvester is being driven that makes a great display. I have seen a couple of early harvesters with a pulley set up so they can be driven without towing them I wonder if that was done so they could be used as just a seed cleaner. Also the blue contraption in the back ground is that a seed cleaner or thresher? Great to see working display

All harvesters had beaters to knock the grain heads off, most were belt driven, as the beaters were not needed when used for cleaning grain a drive pulley was available.

Hello Nathan
As David has said, the front beaters can be disconnected leaving a spare spot on the big drive pulley. When the ground drive is disconnected, via a lever up near the seat, a belt can be put onto the spare spot to let the header work as a grain cleaner. Everything thing else such as the elevators etc work when the header is in cleaner mode.
The blue thingo is a corn sheller that was made up her in either Boonah or Beaudesert. I can't remember which.
I have a better video of it working and I'm sure I got a video of a chap chucking corn into the top of it. The video is in the pipe line for fixing up.

Cheers Scott
PS: I had to laugh at the description in your video Mr Iron.

Yes, my son put that on because I don't know how. He is a jelly armed pen pusher, but I wouldn't swap him for quids.
